The first bus will depart from Friends School as soon as it reaches capacity, and the final bus will leave as soon as all relay runners are cleared from the course. Please follow directions from volunteers to board the buses in a timely manner. - we don’t want to leave you out there!
Bag check will be located at Friends School for leg two relay runners. Bags will be transported during the race to the finish line at Under Armour in Locust Point. Please limit checked bags to 1 per person, no larger than 18”x20” (the bag which you receive at packet pickup is the perfect size!)
Please Note - Leg one relay runners who check their bag at the Shops at Kenilworth will have their bag transported directly to Under Armour. Bags from the start will not be taken to the relay exchange point at Friends School.

Leg 1 of the relay will have 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete the first segment of the team relay in order to stay on pace. If a team’s first runner does not complete the first segment by the cutoff time the second runner will be released at the 1 hour and 15 minute mark.
